As one of the most well-respected and longest-standing CPA firms in the San Francisco Bay Area, Shea Labagh Dobberstein (SLD) provides a full range of auditing, tax, and consulting services. We have built, since our founding more than 75 years ago, trusted relationships with private companies in Northern California industries. These include real estate, manufacturing, construction, logistics, distribution, wholesale, food and beverage, professional services. We also have extensive experience working with nonprofits and high net worth individuals.
With approximately 100 employees working in three Bay Area offices, SLD provides the benefits of both a large and small CPA firm. We have the global reach, deep expertise, specialized resources, and other advantages of a large firm. We are members of DFK International, a global association of accounting firms throughout the world. However, we are also a small enough CPA firm to offer exceptional service and a responsive, efficient approach. There is constant communication between practice areas and a high employee-to-client ratio, giving you technical expertise and focused individual attention. Our unique approach has consistently earned honors, including Forbes Magazine naming us to its 2020 list of “America’s Top Recommended Tax & Accounting Firms” and INSIDE Public Accounting calling us a “Best of the Best Firm” for 2020.
Many of our certified public accountants have decades of experience. For example, principal Ronald “Ron” K. Simonian, CPA, has been with SLD for nearly 30 years. He has expertise in both tax and audit across a broad range of industries, particularly nonprofits, distribution and real estate. Principals and staff like Ron have enabled SLD to attain seven consecutive “unmodified” peer reviews without comments from the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA)—an achievement less than 10% of accounting firms in the US have earned, indicating our strict adherence to quality control standards.
We help great clients succeed with tax, audit, and accounting services. Since 1944, businesses have relied on us for independent, reliable accounting advice. For a CPA firm in San Francisco that helps you reach your financial goals, contact Shea Labagh Dobberstein.
